FREE GOLF BETTING GUIDE AND TIPS
Firstly, congratulations to Shane Lowry on his win at The Open and his first Major Championship, it certainly was an incredible week for both the North and South of Ireland. This week sees the FedEx St Jude Classic become a WGC event and renamed the WGC FedEx St Jude Invitational replacing the old Bridgestone Invitational.
Ron Prichard designed TPC Southwind, which opened as a private members golf club in March 1988. Prichard enlisted the advice of PGA tour players Hubert Green and Fuzzy Zoeller to turn 240 acres of countryside into this stunning track.
The natural lakes and streams are the foundation on which this course has been designed and there are two-grain silos and a windmill that stand as a reminder of the dairy farm that once frequented this site.
One of the course’s signature holes is the par 3 11th hole which is similar to the 17th at TPC Sawgrass where players take aim at an island green 165-yards away. The course record is 61, jointly held by Jay Delsing and Bob Estes.

My tips to Win:
The WGC St Jude Invitational is replacing the WGC Bridgestone Invitational and although the winner of the Bridgestone event was Justin Thomas 16/1 – with Betway – the defending champion over the TPC Southwinds course is Dustin Johnson 10/1 – with SportingBet – who won here by six shots last year to win this event for the second time, Dustin also has two other Top 10s at the St Jude and he is my number one pick this week.
No doubt Brooks Koepka 11/1 – with UniBet – will be disappointed in his final two rounds at Royal Portrush and although he was striking the ball well he couldn’t hole a putt. I think being back on PGA Tour speed greens those putts will start to drop and he will be in the thick of it come Sunday.
I didn’t tip Rory McIlroy 11/1 – with BetFred – last week because I had a feeling the enormity of the circumstances would prove overwhelming, but in the same breath it’s the same reason why I feel he will do well here this week. Rory will want to prove to himself and the world that he is one of the best and similar to his last round at the Masters when he came back in the US Open to destroy the field, I think we may just see that again this week from McIlroy.
It has been a great year so far for Chez Reavie 66/1 – with SkyBet – with a win and three other Top 5 finishes including a third place at the US Open. I know Chez comes into this week on the back of two missed cuts, but he has only been outside the Top 12 in this event once in the last four years and has finished sixth and fourth in the last two year. With that record I am sure he will be looking forward to being back on familiar territory at TPC Southwinds this week.
Although I didn’t tip him last week I did expect Billy Horschel 66/1 – with UniBet – to make the cut at last weeks Open Championship as he has been in solid form having only been outside the Top 25 once in his previous six starts. Billy has a good record here over recent years finishing inside the Top 10 every year he’s teed it up since 2013, unfortunately he broke that run last year, but I think these are good odds for someone with that kind of record.
On current form It really is no surprise to see Phil Mickelson 100/1 – with SkyBet – this far down the betting odds with five missed cuts from his last seven starts and going by the interview at The Open he is not in a good place. I tried hard not to tip him but when you realise since he started teeing it up here regularly in 2013 he has not been outside the Top 12 and has two runner-up finishes and a Top 5 these odds start to look very good.
Try Justin Harding 200/1 – with UniBet
As always good luck
